Some friends recently presented me with their dilemma: they want a table in their kitchen, but the only good space for one is a narrow bit of wall between two doorways. My first thought was to start looking for a square bar table. The bar tables we've seen come in two sorts. There are the nearly chest-high tables that require bar stools. And then there are the smaller two-person café tables. The higher tables tend to create a sense of space without making us feel crowded in a small kitchen, but it's also nice to be able to sit down at a normal-sized table for breakfast. Either way works - take your pick! Here are four of each kind that we're hoping fit the bill for our friends' kitchen.
